Almighty God, whose dear Son, on the night before he suffered, instituted the Sacrament of his Body and Blood: Mercifully grant that we may receive it thankfully in remembrance of Jesus Christ our Lord, who in these holy mysteries gives us a pledge of eternal life; and who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

— Book of Common Prayer

From our recent Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles pilgrimage, two views of the garden of Gethsemane, where the old olive trees seem to present anguished faces; and a pilgrim’s hand on the rock in the garden where the church remembers Jesus suffered and was tempted, now enclosed by the Church of All Nations.
